Armani's Ratings and Reviews
We have dined at Armani's on several occasions over the last 3 to 4 years and have never had a low experience. Romantic sunsets, the piano bar is an excellent place to gather with friends for an afternoon or early evening of casual conversation and excellent choice of wines or your favorite cocktail. The dinner menu is always creative and the food rates at the top of the scale. The service is well attentive to your needs and always with a smile. We've joined many of our friends on the other side of the bay as well as some out of town guests for cocktails or dinner, with everyone leaving impressed and satisfied.
This was our 3rd trip to Armanis. Food is always amazing, especially the Anti Pasta Bar. However, this trip, the chef at the anti pasta bar was pretty stingy with the selections, and our service was incredibly slow. Not perfectly paced as usual. But we were sitting in between each course getting full before the next course came. Veal is definitely their specialty, and my husband and I went for other offerings of Bison and Ribeye which we slightly regretted. We were also sitting right in front of the outside patio, and it was a bit distracting to have parties coming in an out all evening long right in front of your table. Especially when we requested a private/window seat for a special occasion. I know requests are just that, but something to note if you're looking forward to a quiet or more intimate dining experience.
I'd still come again to Armani's, in hopes his was one off night, and not the usual, as we've had amazing experiences in the past.
Fantastic Experience! Flawless service and restaurant management. We celebrated a special occasion, which the restaurant responded with kind hospitality. Would recommend, regardless if you are not staying at the Hyatt. Great outside terrace to take photos of the Bay view, have drinks and an appetizer, although not for dining.
From the moment you arrive the hostess greeeted us with a smile and then once we arrived at our table we were welcomed by a spectacular view. Our server was excellent and showed complete knowledge of all the dishes as well as wines. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and were definitely impressed by the service and the quality of the food. We were not disappointed.
Great views from the bar and dining room. Excellent bartender in the lounge. Moved to our table and waited a while for the server to take our drink order. Sharons 's glass of Champagne came in a chipped glass (service bar problem). Caesar salad was void of garlic and anchovies, had to ask server to bring some. He was surprised that we asked. Entrees were fair. Desserts were good but nothing outstanding. Like we said at the beginning of this review GREAT VIEWS FROM THE BAR/LOUNGE AND DINNING ROOM.
We did the Groupon, when I made my reservation I asked for a Window seating. On Wednesday I got a call from the restaurant to confirm my reservation and once again I asked for a window seating and the young lady confirmed that we have a window seat. When we show up we were told there is no window seating and I was very disappointed, when I asked the hostess I was told window seating is first come first serve, so what is the point of a reservation? I didn't care for her attitude and non nonchalant way like we were not suppose to be there and just take what you get.
Cannot beat the location and views, especially when the sunset cooperates. Fabulous venue, Armanis never fails to make the occasion special. Service is a tad slow, but the wait staff are charming and well trained. Prices for both food and beverage are competitive with other 1st class restaurants. Coupled with a stay at the Grand Hyatt, it's an evening you will remember for a long time.
Hard to find in the hotel.. signs are definitely lacking.. located on the 14th floor, views are beautiful. Playing is fabulous, Ceasare salad had odd choice for lettuce. Specializing in meats, all were very good, not amazing, but priced fairly high. Wine list is very good, but again ditto on pricing. All of this said, the view and environment covers some imperfections.
We have been going to Armani's for over 30 years. We started in the days when Joe was the Maitre d, Nagi was out waiter, Susan worked the bar and Kasey was an attendant. Later some of those left and we replaced by others, including Timothy who was our waiter for several years.
Unfortunately, the charm and elegance of the restaurant is no more. Where business attire was required, guests now wear shorts. The prices remain that of a 5 star restaurant, but it is no longer that. While the bar prices are "up there" the snacks that were offered are no longer. The piano player has an amplifier that make it impossible to converse in the bar area.
There is no longer the presentation of the appetizer menu at the station and the attendant our night (slender African American man) was rude.
Our waiter was very pleasant and top notch and explained that in order to compete they had to now adopt a casual setting. No longer is there a table side preparation of the Caesar salad, Bananas Foster served tableside or the complimentary chocolates that we used to bring home for our children.
Sadly we will not return but are pleased we experienced the restaurant during its finest hour.
My wife and I had not been to Armani's in a few years. We had heard the level of service had deteriorated due to the outsourcing of the wait staff. Not true. It was our anniversary. The quality and breadth of entrees were broad and the wait staff excellent. If you have been to Armani's in the past, the level of service and the quality of the food is a good as it has ever been. In addition, the staff went out of their way to make sure that our experience was very memorable.
Great atmosphere and wait staff. Everyone was extremely helpful and would go out of their way to accommodate you. Our bar tender served us while we waited for our reservation. Once seated, Maria and Roberto assisted us. Maria is PHENOMENAL!!!! She has been there 23 years and is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and kind. Next time we visit, we will ask to be seated with Maria. Great food, very tasty and light. The views are exquisite, with all around amazing views. Definitely will come here again. Although a bit pricey, you pay for everything you get and more!!
First time to Armani's . Went with friends and we try different restaurants and grade them as to whether we would go back or not. This was a definite yes. Loved the view, Food and drinks were excellent I had a great martini although I would've preferred blue cheese stuffed olives. The tapas bar looked like there were many choices. We did not try it this time but will on our next visit We chose the specials , 2 flounder and 2 fruite de mare The presentation was pleasing and the flavor appealed to the taste buds Creme Brulé desert All excellent and indeed I would do a repeat visit 5 star all around
Top notch service and delicious food. Hospitality displayed from start to finish. We watched plane after plane land at the airport that was surrounded by the Tampa skyline. It was all illuminated by the city lights. The best compliment I can give is that we will return very soon!
Had an anniversary dinner off the prefix tasting menu from Groupon. Wide range of intense Italian flavors. Authentic Italian cheeses and meats of the finest quality. The view of Tampa Bay and or of Tampa international airport with planes landing and taking off the 2nd to 9 in Tampa proper.
